Character biography

Write a the name of a character down the side of a page. (Preferably one you've created but it can be any favorite character. Or you can use one or more of the names from today's writing prompt.)

On each line write a word or phrase beginning with that letter that is a true statement about the character.

For example for a character named Holmeyer:

He lives with a rabbit
Open hearted
Loves bridges
Means well
Ebbs when he should flow
Yearns for love
Even tempered
Runs from life

(Try it with your own name too. Your worst enemy. A villain.)

This is from Character Autobiography by Hal Ackerman
